Shipwrecks of the world

Haven't posted shipwrecks until now, for the main reason that people are pretty aware of their existence. They always fascinated me though, what's better than a huge steel machinery, left to rust and disintegrate at the hands of nature? 
Also fascinating is the fact that many shipwrecks even redefined history, cultures and media (the Titanic for example).
Being that I live in a port city, which once based it's industry on the Danube, growing up I've seen a lot of shipwrecks, some of which were in a state of decay, similar to some of the photos in this post. They were not left there due to an accident, like a rock or iceberg collision, but simply because they became "useless" once the industry went downhill, and they were just left there to rust. Most of them were sold at some point, as scrap metal, and there aren't many left these days.

Yes, those are trees on a shipwreck. A small island on an abandoned boat. How many years should a shipwreck be left abandoned for something like this to happen? The palm tree left me speechless.



Another case of a boat island.

  1. I want to visit the boat island so very, very badly. I read somewhere there is still billions worth of shipwreck salvage left in shipwrecks hidden around the world, due to how extraordinarily difficult it is to get to the depths they reside in. Still, how cool would that be, and underwater treasure haven?

  4. Every shipwreck narrates a hidden story and depicts a picture of desolation.Nature at the end has the last word.
